Aspirin Saves Lives
“EVERY ADULT OVER FORTY-FIVE YEARS OLD
SHOULD CARRY ASPIRIN
AT ALL TIMES”

- How Aspirin can help save lives.
Heart attacks can strike any time, any place, and without warning. UrgentRx Critical Care Aspirin was made with these life-threatening situations in mind. The credit card-sized packet of Critical Care Aspirin contains a 325mg dose of aspirin that can help save a life. In the event you—or someone near you—experience heart-attack symptoms, act fast. Call 911. At the direction of a health care provider, rip open the Critical Care package and pour the fast-dissolving medicine directly into your, or the victim’s, mouth. Don’t waste time looking for water. UrgentRx Fast Powders start dissolving in your mouth immediately and can be quickly swallowed.
- What does aspirin do during a heart attack?
Aspirin is often praised for its many beneficial and life-saving attributes. One of the most amazing effects of aspirin is that is makes blood platelets less prone to clot. A heart attack occurs when the supply of blood and oxygen to an area of heart muscle is blocked, usually by a clot in a coronary artery. Taking aspirin immediately at the first sign of heart attack symptoms (as directed by your primary care provider) may help prevent the formation of additional blood clots, which can further block blood flow within the heart. Thus, in the event of a heart attack, additional heart muscle damage may be prevented or delayed by taking aspirin, buying a heart attack victim critical time to get to a hospital for treatment by a doctor.
